    So today ill be picking up a new(to me) 1520. Any suggestions for accessories? I'd like a car charger that will charge the phone while using GPS. Does such a thing exist? How about a Qi charger recommendation? Ooooooh how about a Qi charger for the car??? Etc etc...

    Any standard car charger with a micro USB cable will work. I've never seen a Qi charger for the car though. I would definitely recommend a case. I have the red, glossy 1520 and it's incredibly slippery.

    My car charger I use now wont even charge up my 928 when i have GPS on. Sometimes it wont charge when its just sitting in the cradle, but I think that's a loose charger port...
    I read about a CR200 car charger, but hear bad things for use with the 1520. Was hoping someone could point me to something similar.

    I use this for my Note 3 and 1520, Garmin on the 1520 and it charges without the phone getting hot.

    Where did you get it and how much? I'm looking at upgrading from a 925.

    Here's a Qi car charger that might pique your interest. Enjoy your new (to you) 1520.3. Have the same phone myself. You'll love it.

    I use the cr201 with my 1520. It works fine but be warned you'll need to take the phone or of its case each time you put it in. It will take a thin case at a squeeze but it verbs like it may get damaged. The plantronics voyager legend Bluetooth headset works very well with the phone also. Enjoy the phone!!!

    PLEASE READ!!

    you need to get a proper charge cable and charger otherwise the charger will not be able to keep up if you use the GPS - was the same on my 1020

    a data cable will *NOT* charge at the full rate and it won't keep up - this is a charge cable - won't work for data, but is made specifically for charging

    here is the list to the two things I bought that work just fine

    Picked mine up. Had a bit of a hard time adding my accounts(no idea why, works fine now) and already my 928 seems tiny. Even had LTE where my 928 had 3g... But have H+at home, but have wifi anyway...

    Don't flash Finland to the 938.. If I'm not mistaken it's messes with LTE radios and have to reset phone
